Pride of place for last year's Christmas releases, at least as far as sales go, has to go to Amy Grant whose Home For Christmas is to our jaundiced ears strictly a creative stocking filler. On the plus side it contained a superlative version of Chris Eaton's "Breath Of Heaven". On the minus side it had versions of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" (yawn) and "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" which was a naff song when Brenda Lee recorded it and remains so despite the production sheen.

If I recall, this is Amy's best selling Christmas cd, I think Billboard magazine stated that it was #2 on the best seller list; way to go Amy!! I love this cd as well as her 1999 follow up christmas cd. Grown up Christmas List was the first song I heard from this project; nice video production for the song. The song touched my heart the very first time that I heard it. I luv the song Emmanuel, GOD with us, I love the traditional lyrics, it is sooo sentimental; full of truth!!This is a great cd to play in its entirety during the holiday season. GOD Bless---- Don
